About Me


To open my heart and my house to people with similar interests. To create a home from home to an adventurous traveller


I am a jeweler, crafts person, artist, cook, mother, wife and friend to many.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy meeting people from different countries.
I love the reciprocal nature of this Airbnb and know that when my kids travel or if we travel there is a network of willing hosts.
I know how expensive it is to travel and pay for accommodation when on a tight budget and it's an opportunity to meet interesting people.
